Coking coal, often known as metallic coal, is a type of sedimentary rock that is naturally present in the earth’s crust. Hard coking coal, semi-hard coking coal, semi-soft coking coal, and pulverized coal for injection are all types of met coal (PCI).

These hold true for the various met coal quality grades, all of which are utilized to create steel. Met coal, which is used to produce electricity, often has higher carbon content, less ash, and less moisture than thermal coal.


Because of its higher carbon content and propensity to clump together, metallic coal differs from thermal coal, which is utilized for energy and heating. The capacity of the coal to be transformed into coke—a pure form of carbon that can be used in fundamental oxygen furnaces—is referred to as caking.


Bituminous coal is harder and darker and is typically categorised as a metallurgical grade. Compared to low-rank coals, it has greater carbon and less moisture and ash.




The Global metallurgical coal market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.




According to the current import policy, customers themselves may freely import coal (under Open General Licence) based on their own needs and commercial discretion.


Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL) and other steel-making facilities import coking coal primarily to fill the gap between demand and supply domestically and to raise the quality. Non-coking coal is imported by coal based power stations, cement factories, captive power plants, sponge iron plants, industrial customers, and coal traders.


Pig-Iron producers and other consumers in the Iron & Steel sector use mini-blast furnaces to import coke.


India’s imports of coking coal increased to 51.65 million t , up 4.5 percent , with shipments primarily coming from Australia. Due to the higher ash percentage of domestic production than what Indian steel mills need, they are dependent on imported coking coal.
